Equipping churches to flourish
in secular environments

Many churches, leaders and believers are grappling with the issues presented by an increasingly secular society.

The challenges are real and there is a temptation to lose hope. However, it’s key to remember that throughout the Church’s history, it is at moments of challenge that the most exciting moves of God break out.

Even in the most secular of environments, there are churches that are flourishing. What is common to these churches are the following building blocks:

Rebuilders will be creating training seminars and events which equip churches to flourish in secular contexts by creating strong foundations out of these building blocks.

On September 1 and 2 2017, we launched Rebuilders with two seminars on the building block of Discipleship, with church and ministry leaders from around Australia learning together what it is to follow Jesus today and form and multiply strong disciples.
